Bundeskartellamt imposes fines on sugar manufacturers* Today the Bundeskartellamt has imposed fines amounting to around 280 million euros on the three major German sugar manufacturers Pfeifer & Langen GmbH & Co.KG, Cologne, Südzucker AG Mannheim/Ochsenfurt, Mannheim, and Nordzucker AG, Braunschweig, for concluding anticompetitive agreements on sales areas, quotas and prices. The infringements involved the sale of sugar for the processing industry (so-called industrial sugar) and sugar for the end consumer (so-called retail sugar). They took place over several years up to the Bundeskartellamt's search in 2009 and in some cases date back to the mid '90s.
